SCRIPTURE READING: 1 CORINTHIANS 15: 40-41
FOCUS: “There is one glory of the sun, and another glory of the moon, and another glory of the stars: for one star differeth from another star in glory.” (1 Corinthians 15: 41)
MEMORY VERSE: “He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil.” (1 John 3: 8)
When God created the sun moon and stars, He gave them a mandate “…to divide the light from the darkness…” (Genesis 1 vs. 18). God positioned the lights with a purpose of having them cause a separation between light and darkness. God used the lights to create a division between light and darkness. God used the light to separate darkness and keep it away from the location of light. The lights were meant to push darkness away.
Friend, if you have received God’s mandate to operate as a burning and shining light in 2023, then you belong to that generation that has been empowered to push away the darkness. You belong to that generation that has been empowered to separate your environment from every darkness that the enemy has positioned. You belong to that generation that that is wired to make it difficult for darkness to operate freely.
In 2023, push away every darkness that the enemy has surrounded you with. Push away every darkness that the enemy has positioned in your family. Push away every darkness that the enemy has positioned in your workplace. Push away every structure of darkness that the enemy has erected in your environment. Put an end to every work of darkness around you. Put an end to every attack of the enemy that wants to reduce you.
Light and darkness were not created to exist side by side. It is the responsibility to light to make sure that there is no darkness. Hear me as I hear the Lord: you have divine empowerment to be that light that will not allow darkness to manifest. God raised you to ensure that darkness will not find space around you in 2023. God raised you so that you will be counted amongst them that do not allow darkness to find a breathing space.
Remember, the light shines in the darkness and the darkness cannot overpower it. You were raised as that light that will put an end to darkness.
